I liked this dish, but DS and DH did not. I used colby jack cheese as we are not velveeta fans. I also left out the mushrooms because my boys are so picky. It got 4 stars from me and 2 from them.

I can't imagine this recipe getting bad reviews. I guess some people know how to follow a recipe and some don't, because this recipe is extremely delicious as written! I made with Velveeta cheese, parmesan cheese, and left out the cayenne pepper (personal preference). I used 2 minced garlic cloves in mine too. I used 2 c. sliced mushrooms as we love them so much. I made buttered noodles to go with this and poured the gravy over my noodles. Perfection! Thanks Kitten! Becky

I thought this was okay, but probably won't be making again. I'm always looking for different ways to jazz up chicken which is difficult to do.
